Nikko Marquez’ choice to replace Devin Sparks isn’t without merit. Ricky Mandel won the 2014 PP3 Cup Tournament and used Percy’s Privilege to capture the Hollywood Heritage Championship that same year. With the record book showing that Mandel has been there and done that, will history be able to repeat itself? Stay tuned to the PP3 Cup Tournament, kicking off in January!
We wish “The American Kaiju” Devin Sparks a speedy recovery and hope to see him back in action on Championship Wrestling From Hollywood in the New Year.
